Matched Betting


Have to say this one was a new one on me! I like the idea of it, even if I don’t fully understand how it works yet, will definately be doing some more research on it though.

the only restriction with this method is that by law you must be over 18 years of age to open an account and engage with online betting. Some countries may also have their own restrictions in place, it is up to you to check you are not breaking any laws!

It seems a little confusing at first, but basically you become the bookmaker (have you ever seen a poor bookmaker??) You place your bets, then you have the option to lay bets, so even if your placed bets lose you still win from others that have bet against you!

Once you understand the basics of it, it’s best to have a practise, you can set up a free account at Bet Dash and play with a pretend bankroll to see if this is for you.

Please note that this is not a risk free way to earn money! If you want to have a go it’s probably wise to hunt around for betting sites offering free bonus sign ups so you are not risking your own money, there are plenty of them.

So long as you are not investing your own money initially you can have a lot of fun with this one, the only real risk this way is human error, take your time when signing up (read the terms and conditions thoroughly) and placing bets. Be sure to double check the bets you place and there should be little or no risk.

Always remember the first rule of gambling, NEVER risk more than you can afford to lose.
